To help ensure continued access to Queensland’s digital public records, Queensland State Archives is dealing with the challenges of deterioration of storage media, obsolescence of software and hardware, as well as the complexities associated with authenticity and integrity of digital records.
The Government Recordkeeping team has moved all their blog posts to their very own blog site: Records Connect.
Add the new address to your 'favourites' and subscribe to the blog to keep up to date with what's happening in recordkeeping.
